Depends on the benefits that can be gained. If I can get a 10% boost in fuel economy or 15% boost in horse power I would definitely consider an ECU tune.

x2

Even if it's just fuel economy improvements, I would look into getting it as with long-enough ownership, it'll pay for itself and eventually start paying you!

A 15% boost in horsepower would be awesome. How much do these ECU tunes usually go for?

I was talking with a friend and he mentioned that when you go the ECU route, it usually voids your warranty and could cause your turbo to fail prematurely. This is something I may have to wait until someone else has had it for a while and can vouch on the added benefits.

Definitely something to consider. I would also wait for someone to vouch for it.

Patience is indeed key especially with something you wouldn't want to mess with as voiding warranty can backfire big time with a vehicle as new as the TLX.
